The 25-year-old was apparently out to eat with his family when he was punched unprovoked. Goedert made a precautionary trip to the hospital, but he checked out fine and was granted his release. The 2018 second-round pick is poised to work behind Zach Ertz as Philadelphia's second tight end again in 2020.
Ellis played three games with the Eagles this season but logged just six offensive snaps and no targets. He suffered a knee injury in Week 4 and was subsequently let go before returning to the team's practice squad in December. The tight end will aim to carve out a run-blocking role in 2020.
Maddox played one fewer game than in his rookie season but managed to set new career highs in virtually every relevant category. He missed Weeks 5 through 7 with a neck sprain and a concussion but immediately returned to his role as the Eagles' starting slot corner, a role he'll likely reprise next season.
Johnson struggled with a foot injury early in the preseason, and he finished the exhibition stretch with an ankle injury. Once he's healthy, he'll be free to sign with another team.
Ostman had logged an impressive training camp prior to suffering a torn left ACL, an injury that was reportedly sustained during a special teams drill. The second-year pro will now turn his attention toward getting fully healthy for 2020.
The Eagles' failure to add wideout talent early in the offseason has drawn criticism, prompting Roseman to tell reporters the following: "I don't feel like the cupboard is as bare as you're describing. Doesn't mean we're ready to roll there." One aspect of Roseman's logic is that Arcega-Whiteside is now fully healthy, whereas last offseason he entered the NFL with lower body injuries (something that wasn't reported publicly at the time). The young wideout dealt with heel, leg and foot ailments at various points throughout his rookie season, ultimately catching 10 passes on 486 offensive snaps. The Eagles are hoping for better health and better production from each of Arcega-Whiteside, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (if he isn't traded), but they also figure to use at least one early draft pick on a wide receiver. There's also time to add a veteran or two, though the top names on the free agent market have already signed elsewhere.
The Eagles continue to prioritize speed above all else in the latter stages of the 2020 NFL Draft, this time selecting the Stanford edge rusher, who posted a 4.62 40-yard dash at the combine. A smart and toolsy player, Toohill struggled mightily at stopping the run in college, but adding more weight -- depending on his positional classification at the professional level -- could help him stick on an NFL roster.
A report back in January suggested McCown had told the Eagles he wasn't ready to retire, but the GQ interview makes it sound like he's reconsidering his future in football. The veteran quarterback will turn 41 in July, and he's still recovering from January surgery to address the hamstring tear he suffered in a wild-card playoff loss to Seattle. Meanwhile, the Eagles have re-signed fellow backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld on a one-year contract.
The 24-year-old apparently sustained the injury during camp, but he opted to play through it since he had a chance to seize a significant defensive role in 2019. Gerry ended up finishing the season playing in all 16 games (12 starts) with 78 tackles (52 solo), 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and one touchdown.
The 49ers shipped the 29-year-old to the Eagles earlier in the day, and it's not a major surprise to see a reworked contract as he was set to receive over $9 million in base salary over the next two seasons. Goodwin is now essentially on a one-year, prove-it deal with Philadelphia, and he'll need to avoid the injury issues that limited him to 20 games over the last two seasons.
Bouka spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. He'll look to find a depth role elsewhere this offseason.
Avery suited up in just two games for the Browns this year, playing five total defensive snaps and making one tackle. He was far more productive last year, averaging 43 defensive snaps per game en route to 40 tackles and 4.5 sacks. That experience could allow the Eagles to leverage Avery into a useful depth asset while also deploying him on special teams.
The Packers remarkably have accrued a negative total of punt return yardage through 11 games. Smith was brought in last month to help resolve the issue, but things have remained the same. Thus, the team has opted to move on and give Tyler Ervin a chance.
Opeta spent time with the Eagles in the offseason, and he'll now get a chance on the 53-man roster. The Weber State product will provide Philadelphia with depth on the offensive line, and he could play a role on special teams.
Although Edwards made four starts, he never played more than 22 defensive snaps in any game. The undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin showcased a strong special-teams presence, however, ranking second on the unit with nine tackles. The Eagles will return their entire linebacking corps in 2020, so Edwards is set up for a similar role in his sophomore campaign.
The Eagles picked up Ertz's 2021 team option back in March, setting him up for cap hits around $12.5 million the next two seasons. An extension for a 29-year-old tight end wouldn't be without risk, but it likely would increase the team's flexibility in the short term. Ertz should be fine for training camp, as he said in January that it would take him about one month to recover from the cracked rib and lacerated kidney that he played through late last season.
Brown joins a retooled Eagles defense and is expected to compete with Duke Riley, Nate Gerry and T.J. Edwards for a starting job. The 26-year-old put together a productive three-year stretch with the Chargers, compiling 255 tackles, 4.5 sacks and three forced fumbles across 43 games, but injuries and general ineffectiveness against the run ultimately forced him out of the starting lineup in 2019, as Brown would play just 94 defensive snaps after averaging 580 to begin his career. Brown is likely one of the fastest linebackers in the NFL, but with a listed height of 5-foot-11 and weighing just 221 pounds, he might be a bit undersized to be a reliable two-down linebacker, and he never developed enough coverage skills to be effective in the passing game.
Riley didn't play a snap on defense across four games with the Falcons this season. He'll need to develop consistency as a tackler to earn a substantial role with the Eagles, but a change of scenery could be what the 2017 third-round pick needs. At the very least, Riley should contribute on special teams in Philadelphia.
This marks the end of the road for a great career from Sproles, who was a three-time Pro Bowler during his lengthy stint in the NFL. Sproles racked up 3,552 rushing yards, 4,840 receiving yards and 55 touchdowns from scrimmage and had nine special teams touchdowns as well.
Hall suffered a torn ACL on the final play of the regular-season finale. His shift to IR opens up a roster spot for the Eagles to sign another running back heading into the playoffs. It's unclear if Hall will be ready for the 2020 season.
Hightower (6-foot-1, 189) is skinny and will be a 24-year-old rookie, but his production at Boise State was strong enough to conclude that he has NFL-level talent despite his college age advantage. Hightower caught 82 of 138 targets the last two years, generating 1,447 yards and 14 touchdowns. With a 4.43-second 40 and 38.5-inch vertical, Hightower showed just enough athleticism at the combine to see his explosiveness translating to the NFL. He's way down the depth chart in Philadelphia, however, with all of Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Jalen Reagor and Marquise Goodwin locked in ahead, and the likes of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward posing further competition.
Singleton failed to make the Eagles' season-opening roster but ended up on the practice squad, and he now receives the promotion to the 53-man roster heading into Week 7. The 25-year-old has yet to make his NFL debut but did spent some time in the CFL.
Jones didn't play a defensive snap in the postseason because the Eagles' secondary was fairly healthy. The 23-year-old remains under contract for another season, and he could have an increased role in 2020 if the Eagles don't retain Ronald Darby (hip) and/or Jalen Mills.
Jernigan never officially passed a physical, which is why the deal was never processed. However, he has been cleared to play by Dr. Robert Watkins. The 27-year-old is expected to draw interest from several other NFL teams.
Holyfield was signed after the regular season, as the Eagles entered the playoffs with an injury-riddled backfield. However, Miles Sanders (knee) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) played through their respective injuries while Boston Scott was available, so the 21-year-old Holyfield remained on the sidelines. The Eagles may retain Holyfield for another look this offseason, but he'll be vying for a special-teams role in 2020 wherever he lands.
The 21st overall pick may head to training camp as Jackson's backup, but there are a few different scenarios that could lead to a steady workload early in the season, even in an offense that figures to rank near the top of the league in usage of multi-TE formations. For starters, Jackson is 33 years old and has missed an average of 5.4 games the past five years, including four absences in 2018 and 13 more in 2019. Then there's the matter of 30-year-old Alshon Jeffery returning from a Lisfranc surgery he had in December, with no assurance of being ready for Week 1. Granted, Reagor does have some other competition for playing time, namely Greg Ward, Marquise Goodwin and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, plus Day 3 drat picks John Hightower and Quez Watkins.
Jackson had season-ending surgery in early November to repair a core muscle injury, but there were some whispers he might try to return in January if the Eagles made a deep playoff run. The team's first-round exit prevented him from having a chance, and it sounds like it would've been a long shot in any case. The 33-year-old wideout is now entering the second season of a three-year, $27 million contract, with 77.4 percent of his $6.2 million base salary for 2020 guaranteed. Jackson has missed an average of 5.2 games over the past five seasons.
Graham played 16 games for the seventh time in the last eight years but hadn't made 50 tackles in a season since 2016. The 8.5 sacks came just one shy of the career-high he set two years ago. Heading into his age-32 season, the Michigan product has two years left on his deal with the Eagles and will be back leading the rotation at defensive end in 2020.
Detroit's signing of Desmond Trufant a day earlier likely expedited the trade of Slay, who was a prime candidate to get moved during the offseason. He'll immediately step in as the Eagles' No. 1 cornerback after earning Pro Bowl nods in each of the past three seasons. Slay tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions in 2017 and has a league-best 82 pass breakups over the past five seasons. His contract extension will deservedly make him one of the NFL's highest-paid defensive backs.
Pederson also mentioned that Jeffery's rehab from Lisfranc surgery in December is going well, though the coach wasn't able to provide any details or a timeline. A report in May suggested the 30-year-old wideout could start the regular season on the PUP list, while multiple Philadelphia beat writers have suggested the Eagles could still try to trade Jeffery. A full guarantee for his $9.91 million base salary would be a complicating factor in negotiations, potentially forcing the Eagles to give up a draft pick just to dump his contract. Given that sizable hurdle, the team may prefer to keep Jeffery around for at least one more year, despite the persistent rumors of discord between him and Carson Wentz. For what it's worth, Wentz has shot down those rumors on multiple occasions, even saying he's confident Jeffery will contribute to the team this upcoming season, per Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. The addition of first-round pick Jalen Reagor could allow the Eagles to take a cautious approach with Jeffery as he works his way back from surgery throughout the summer and into fall.
The Eagles add major speed to their linebacking corps with the addition of Taylor out of Colorado. He ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash at 228 pounds after a productive two-year career with the Buffaloes. He's still working on his play diagnosing and coverage instincts, but the physical tools make him an intriguing developmental project.
Hector previously joined the 53-man roster in late October, when he played 30 snaps on defense during Week 8's tilt against the Bills. He appears set for a depth role on the defensive line during Sunday's must-win divisional contest against the Cowboys.
Scott started the year buried on the depth chart but contributed solidly once he got the opportunity. With Darren Sproles (hip) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, Scott got the opportunity to run what was essentially the "Sproles role" with 176 rushing yards on 44 attempts and 26 catches on 28 targets for 222 receiving yards over the Eagles' last five games, including their wild-card loss. The 24-year-old has likely earned a similar role on the team next season with Sproles headed for retirement.
Though the Eagles used the 53rd overall pick in April's draft on Hurts, that investment alone won't give the rookie the leg up in the job battle with Sudfeld, who is entering his fourth year in the Eagles' system. The shortened offseason in light of the coronavirus pandemic will only make it more difficult for Hurts to gain familiarity with Pederson's offensive scheme, so his first year in the NFL could be more of a developmental one, at least from the perspective of a traditional quarterback. Hurts' skills as a runner may still allow him to see occasional snaps as a gadget player or Wildcat quarterback, but in the event of a Wentz injury, Sudfeld looks to be the next man up under center.
Rush was signed off the Raiders' practice squad earlier this week, but he originally signed with the Eagles after going undrafted out of UAB in April before waived over the summer. The 23-year-old should see a sizable role as he makes his NFL debut Sunday at Buffalo, with Tim Jernigan (foot) missing the last five games and with Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) and Malik Jackson (foot) on injured reserve. The only other healthy defensive tackle on the roster besides All-Pro Fletcher Cox is another undrafted rookie in Albert Huggins, who was also signed this week.
Perkins set new career marks in catches, yards and targets in his third pro season but still wasn't much of a fantasy contributor. The 26-year-old will become a restricted free agent in the offseason, so there is a good chance he will be backing up Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert again in 2020.
That's now four receivers with sub 4.5 speed acquired by the Eagles in the past three days, three of which came Saturday during Day 3 of the NFL Draft. Watkins is yet another dynamic vertical threat who is a capable returner to boot, but he doesn't really display a proper flow when running routes. When you're as fast as Watkins (4.35 40-yard dash) that probably doesn't matter much, but he might have a hard time separating from the bevy of speed demons cobbled together by Philadelphia in recent days.
While Brooks displayed optimism regarding the news, he will most certainly miss the entire 2020 season as a result of the injury. He also underwent surgery on his shoulder following the regular season, and it is unclear how far along in his recovery process there. The 30-year-old is currently backed up by Jack Driscoll at right guard on the Eagles' depth chart, but it's unclear who will ultimately win the job in his absence.
Curry visited with a number of teams since being cut loose from Tampa Bay last month, but he's now officially heading back to the team he won a Super Bowl with just two seasons ago. It's not clear how large a role he'll have in his age-31 season, but Curry nonetheless figures to maintain a key role in the defensive end rotation. His importance would become even more pronounced if Chris Long decides to hang up the cleats.
Prior to rejoining the Eagles for the postseason, Gibson had been on the Browns' practice squad all year. His only noteworthy play was drawing a pass interference penalty on the team's last drive of the wild-card round. With Philadelphia almost certain to get healthier while also making upgrading its receiving corps a priority in the offseason, the 24-year-old faces long odds to crack the Eagles' Week 1 roster in 2020.
The Clemson product was a three-year collegiate starter at strong safety, but his build (5-foot-11, 206 pounds) is one more prototypical of a cornerback. Though Wallace's tape showcases solid speed and consistent toughness as a tackler, he could struggle to match up with big-bodied intermediate receivers and tight ends. That said, Wallace showed well while handling occasional nickel responsibilities in college, and his versatility could earn him a quick path to playing time in Philadelphia's needy secondary.
The 2021 option is estimated at around $10 million, a hefty price for a defensive end that has missed 12 games over the past two seasons and has only logged 14 sacks since entering the NFL in 2017. The Eagles are evidently hopeful that Barnett can take a step forward in 2020, but if not, the team could cut him next offseason with few financial repercussions, as the fifth-year option is fully guaranteed only for injury.
Johnson's replacement at right tackle will presumably be Halapoulivaati Vaitai. The veteran is expected to be ready for Round 2 of the playoffs should the Eagles ultimately advance.
Arnold went undrafted out of Baylor. The former Bear checks in at 5-foot-9 and 186 pounds. He was both second-team All American and All-Big 12 during his junior campaign, when he led the team with six picks. He has worked primarily in the slot so far in his career.
The 2016 third-round pick spent the first four seasons of his career in Pittsburgh, and he totaled 60 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 16 games last year. The deal includes $26 million fully guaranteed as Hargrave is set to anchor Philadelphia's defensive line over the next few years.
Seumalo played in at least 13 games during each of the last two seasons, showcasing his versatility by playing at multiple positions on the offensive line. With Brandon Brooks rehabbing from an Achilles injury sustained during the playoffs, Seumalo could slot into the starting lineup to begin the 2019 season.
In each of his three years in the league, Elliott has logged at least an 83.9 percent success rate, earning himself a new five-year deal in the process. He did not miss a single field-goal attempt from inside 40 yards during the season, despite whiffing on two extra-point tries. The 24-year-old accounted for all of the Eagles' nine points in their wild-card loss and looks to be a fixture on the team for years to come.
Tucker was waived by the Lions on Monday but didn't make it through the waiver wire unclaimed. The offensive lineman was with Philadelphia in training camp, but he was let go in early August after suffering a concussion and eventually latched on with Detroit.
Wanogho (6-foot-5, 308 pounds) showed well as a three-year starter at Auburn, making the most of his frame despite possessing below-average athletic ability. His health is something of a question mark, as he missed Auburn's Pro Day in March while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. When recovered, Wanogho may have better success as a guard than as a tackle at the NFL level.
Ward had been the de facto leader of the wideout group over the final three games of the regular season, securing 17 of 21 targets for 175 yards and a touchdown in the absence of Alshon Jeffery (foot) and Nelson Agholor (knee). However, Ward could do no better than third on team in receiving yardage Sunday, although the absence of Carson Wentz (concussion) from the late first quarter on very likely had a part to play in his downturn in production. On the books for just $570,000 in 2020 -- and having built some momentum with his late-season play -- Ward will head into the offseason with an eye on carving out a much bigger role next season.
Davis started the season with Washington and saw action in three straight games from Weeks 2 through 4 but was let go after the only game in which he recorded a catch for the Redskins. The Eagles added the 24-year-old to their practice squad within the week, and he ascended to the active roster in December after Alshon Jeffery was placed on IR. Davis would appear in four games with Philadelphia, including the wild-card loss, but was only targeted thrice that whole time, making just one six-yard grab. He'll likely be a fringe roster component for the Eagles again next season.
Zangaro points to a Week 11 game against New England as evidence Mills can be more than just an outside cover corner. His stellar performance in that contest may have contributed to the Eagles' decision to let Jenkins leave for New Orleans in free agency, with Mills representing a cheaper alternative for the hybrid safety/slot role. That's not to say there won't be any drop off, but Mills has an opportunity to approach Jenkins' IDP production from six seasons in Philadelphia -- averages of 85.8 tackles, 9.7 pass breakups, 2.0 forced fumbles, 1.8 interceptions and 1.0 fumble recovery per year. Of course, Jenkins started all 16 games in each of those seasons, while Mills missed 15 contests over the past two years alone.
This is in the words of Eagles GM Howie Roseman, who recently used a first-round pick on Jalen Reagor (4.47 40), a fifth-rounder on John Hightower (4.43), a sixth-rounder on Quez Watkins (4.35) and even added Marquise Goodwin (4.27) in a pick swap. Roseman hopes the offense can add a consistent downfield element for the first time since Wentz's 2017 breakout season, with the aforementioned receivers competing for snaps that went to possession targets like Alshon Jeffery (foot) and Nelson Agholor last year. Jeffery's status on the team remains tenuous, at best, while DeSean Jackson seems to be in much better standing. It could even be argued that the team now has too many deep threats not enough possession guys in the wideout corps, but that shouldn't be much of a problem if Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Miles Sanders stay healthy. While it doesn't come with any guarantees, the offseason makeover at least gives Wentz a ceiling that stretches beyond his 2018-19 production.
In his second professional season, Sweat displayed a strong pass-rushing presence, logging 15 quarterback pressures. The 22-year-old finished with 355 defensive snaps, ranking fourth among the Eagles' defensive ends behind Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Vinny Curry. Curry will be a free agent in March while both Graham and Barnett are under contract in 2020, so Sweat will likely work in a rotational role again.
The 28-year-old logged 36 tackles and two forced fumbles in 16 games (including three starts) for the Rams last season. He'll add depth to Philadelphia's cornerback corps, but Robey-Coleman is unlikely to be a factor in most IDP leagues.
James, who previously resided on Philadelphia's practice squad, logged 11 special-teams snaps compared to one defensive snap for the Eagles in Week 2 against Atlanta. He figures to again serve as depth/special-teams player during Thursday's game against the Packers, but that could change quickly if an injury forces another cornerback to join starter Ronald Darby (hamstring) on the sidelines. Wide receiver Greg Ward was waived in a corresponding transaction.
The move comes one day after the Vikings plucked Andrew Sendejo off waivers from the Eagles, so the two clubs essentially exchanged safeties. Epps, a rookie sixth-round pick, played predominantly in a special-teams role with the Vikings. However, Sendejo leaves behind a steady workload in Philly, so Epps has the opportunity to compete with Rudy Ford for opportunities on defense.
Ford was unable to practice this week due to the Achilles injury and was already ruled out for Sunday, and now his season comes to an early end. The 25-year-old had six tackles (three solo) in 10 games.
Those were the only two games of the season for Burnett, who joined Philadelphia's practice squad in mid-December before injuries necessitated his call-up. He was with the Jets in the preseason but spent the bulk of the year on the 49ers practice squad. The 22-year-old now heads into the offseason an exclusive-rights free agent and therefore will be back with the Eagles in 2020 if the club elects to extend him a qualifying offer.
Sudfeld made appearances in only three regular-season games through his first three years in the organization, completing 20 of 25 attempts for 156 yards and one touchdown. He dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart in 2019 after the Eagles signed veteran Josh McCown last August, but he'll head into training camp second in the pecking order after McCown wasn't re-signed. While the Eagles clearly have big plans for Hurts after nabbing him with the No. 53 overall pick in April's draft, the abbreviated offseason due to the coronavirus pandemic works against the Oklahoma product's chances of capturing a notable role in 2020, at least as a traditional pocket passer. Hurts could still see occasional snaps as a gadget player or Wildcat quarterback, but Sudfeld's prior familiarity with the Eagles' system and competent play when called upon in the past gives him a major leg up in the battle for the backup gig.
Jackson sustained a Lisfranc foot injury in Week 1 and was subsequently placed on IR. At this rate, he appears on track for most, if not all, of the offseason program, and he should be full-go by training camp. Jackson's last full season was in 2018, when he accrued 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks through 16 games with the Jaguars.
Bradham just finished the second season of his five-year, $40 million contract, and he recorded his lowest tackle total (61) since the 2015 season. According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, this move will save the Eagles $4.5 million against the salary cap, and there's a slight chance he returns to the team on a low-cost contract. Otherwise, expect the 30-year-old to find a new franchise this offseason.
Ridgeway was traded from the Colts to the Eagles last offseason in exchange for a seventh-round pick. He went on to start five of his seven games in Philadelphia, recording eight tackles and two sacks before an ankle injury sent him to injured reserve Oct. 23. The Eagles presumably intend for the 25-year-old to serve as depth on the interior line, with Fletcher Cox and Malik Jackson (foot) expected to start at defensive tackle.
Cox has logged between 40 and 46 tackles in three of the past four campaigns, but he turned in the second-lowest sack total of his eight-year career. He'll likely bounce back and re-emerge as a reliable low-end option in IDP leagues next season.
Sanders capably filled that role late last season, averaging 15.7 carries for 71.7 yards and 4.2 catches for 34.2 yards over a six-game stretch Weeks 11-16. He then suffered an ankle sprain Week 17 and an MCL sprain in the playoff loss to Seattle, but there hasn't been any indication of either injury impacting his offseason routine. The current depth chart holds Boston Scott, Corey Clement and a trio of undrafted young players behind Sanders, albeit with the possibility of the Eagles eventually signing a veteran. The team reportedly reached out to Devonta Freeman, and LeSean McCoy has mentioned having interest in a reunion.
Peters turns 38 later this month, but the veteran tackle evidently feels good enough to play another season after the 2019 Eagles failed to overcome a plethora of injuries come playoff time. Whether he moves elsewhere in free agency or stays in Philadelphia remains to be seen.
The 32-year-old will reprise his usual role as Philadelphia's starting center. He received his third Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors last season while managing to play every snap for the Eagles.
Lauletta spent the 2019 campaign on the Eagles' practice squad. Now, he'll set his sight on securing the backup role to Carson Wentz (head) in 2020. Josh McCown showed he has plenty left in the tank after relieving Wentz in the wild-card loss to the Seahawks, but his contract expires in March. If McCown doesn't re-sign, it'll likely be between Lauletta and Nate Sudfeld for the No. 2 role, barring another acquisition through free agency or the draft.
The 24-year-old started his rookie year at 315 pounds but played about five pounds heavier for most of the season, and teammate Brandon Brooks (Achilles) said he's currently up to 335 pounds. Longtime left tackle Jason Peters hit free agency this offseason and remains unsigned, but the Eagles have committed to moving forward with their 2019 first-round pick. Dillard appeared in all 16 regular season games during his rookie year and started four contests, so he at least got his feet wet as a starter as he takes over the full-time gig.
Parks evidently left more money on the table to join his hometown team. The 25-year-old quietly emerged as a starter for the Broncos last season, compiling 35 tackles across 14 games, and he likely will compete with Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod for one of the two starting safety spots come the fall.
Huggins was just claimed off waivers by New England on Monday, but he ended up being let go in order to get kicker Nick Folk back on the roster. The undrafted rookie will now look for a new opportunity.
The Eagles won't pick up their 2020 contract option for Malcolm Jenkins, but they will hold on to the lesser known of their two starting safeties. McLeod was a 16-game starter in 2019, rebounding from a 2018 ACL tear to notch 76 tackles, six pass defenses, two interceptions and two forced fumbles while playing 99.2 percent of defensive snaps. PFF graded him at No. 52 out of 86 qualified safeties, with a 66.2 grade marking his first time below 70.0 since 2014.
The terms of Douglas' restructure remain undisclosed, but it looks likely that the 24-year-old has agreed to a more team-friendly deal in order to increase his chances of making the 53-man roster. Douglas normally plays a reserve role in Philadelphia's secondary, but he made six starts in 2019 due to an abundance of injuries to the team's cornerback group.
Philadelphia opted not to tender the 25-year-old a contract as a restricted free agent in March, but the team is now bringing him back on a more affordable deal. Clement had a solid rookie campaign as an undrafted free agent in 2017, but he's been limited by injury to 15 games over the past two seasons. The Eagles didn't add any running backs during the course of the 2020 NFL Draft, so the Wisconsin product figures to compete for the backup job with Boston Scott behind starter Miles Sanders.
Williams appeared in two games with the Cardinals early in the season but never latched on with another team after being waived in late October. The 26-year-old has appeared in 39 games with the Chargers and Cardinals since going undrafted in 2016 and has 110 total tackles and three interceptions.
